Be inspired by a dark and dramatic Victorian town house

7 images

A five-storey Victorian town house in north London. The lower-ground floor has a kitchen-diner and utility room. The ground floor has a living room and WC. There’s a master suite on the first floor, plus 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a studio on the top floors.

Wanting to add to the drama of the grey wall, the owners hung trompe l’oeil wallpaper for a cool library mood.
